First Meeting of the Implementing a Basic Income In Australia Group

The first ever public meeting for Implementing a Basic Income in Australia was held on the 18th of September 2015 at Mr Falcon’s Bar in Glebe.

The meetup was not advertised outside of the small facebook group and there was non structure to the meetup. I had prepared a small something to talk about, primarily trying to identify all of the possible variable at play with implementing a Basic Income. ie: Who gets it? How much do they get? How long does the program run for? etc.

We worked through my notes in an ongoing group discussion, often exploring side tangents related to each issue brought up in the process.
